I did finish knitting Angelina a scarf for Christmas! I will take a picture of her wearing it after she opens it. :D She will be thrilled!
Anyway. I had a great week!! Despite the craziness that I call orders. Mike was out of town a couple of days in California. So, my friend, Jen [pictures of her to come - one of these days] spent those nights with me. She even slept over! A true to life sleep over. Man! I hadn't had one of those since High School! LOL. We had a blast, though!! I taught her and her friend how to knit while we watched the movie, "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2". Which was cute, by the way. :) That is when I finished Angelina's scarf. We stayed up too late, laughed a lot, and had a total blast! Jen is quickly becoming a fabulous friend. We just love to hang out - she lives across the street.... so we see each other daily... I call it "My Daily Jen". LOL!! It's great to have a friend. I know you all agree. ha ha.
Anyway. Last night, I spent some time alone after Angelina and I got home from the movie, and she and Zoe went to bed. Mike wasn't due home until midnight or so. I turned on my Twilight soundtrack quietly, and went to work on a present that, unfortunately I can't share the entire thing now... but, here is a sneak...
Once the thing is gifted and opened, I will share the entire picture. :)
I feel like this holiday is going by like a blur!
Pretty soon, there will be a bunch of presents under this tree.
Now I feel like I can enjoy the Christmas season... less than 6 days of enjoyment left. Angelina's last day of school was today. She is now off for Christmas break. She won't go back until the NEW YEAR! Whoa! I can't believe we have less than 2 weeks until 2009. That is really insane. This year has flown by.
For now, I am off to work on my projects. Angelina is going to open gym tonight... so, I think Zoe, Mike and I might go out to Target and Joann's... or something. :)
P.S. Ricci, I tried the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate at Starbucks last night... it is really good. However. It was way to chocolatey for me. I couldn't drink but half of it. Way better than I thought, though. ;) Chai Latte is still my favorite, though.
